How It Works
Explore the easy 5-step remote online notarization process
Secure Remote Online Notarization (RON)
Provide security and trust at every step of the remote online notarization workflow
Traditional in-person notarizations are vulnerable to security threats and fraud. With identity theft and fraud continuously on the rise, scammers are targeting high-value transactions, such as property transfers, estate documents, and powers of attorney.
OneSpan Notary assists with mitigating the risk of fraud compared to traditional notarizations by protecting notaries, signers, and underlying agreements with:
- Strong identity proofing options like Identity Verification and Knowledge-based Authentication (KBA) to positively identify signers
- Access to an encrypted videoconferencing session to complete the notarization in real-time
- Digital signatures applied after each signature to provide tamper-evident documents
- Built-in security controls with co-browsing that prevent participants from signing on behalf of each other
- Access to completed agreements, audit trail, and recording after each remote online notarization session
- Bank-grade security to secure notarized documents and data– in transit and at rest
Capture Strong Electronic Evidence
Establish enforceability and authenticity for every notarized agreement
Each notarized agreement is accompanied by a recording of the session along with a comprehensive audit trail detailing events that took place during the notarial session. The audit trail captures:
- Signing privileges passed between notary and signers
- IP address and geolocation details of participants
- Pass / fail identity proofing details
- E-Signing events and timestamps
- Remote online notaries applying their eNotary electronic seal
- And more
